STRASBOURG, October 3 (Itar-Tass) - Russian State Duma Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Alexei Pushkov links the attack on the Russian Embassy in Libya with the consequences of the Arab Spring.
“Before the anti-Libyan coalition invaded the country and the regime of Muammar Al-Gaddafi was overthrown Libya was a stable country. The situation was stable in North Africa,” Pushkov told reporters on Thursday.
“Now Libya was uncontrolled,” the Russian lawmaker said, adding, “The situation in Libya resulted from the West’s actions by replacing the regime. Thus, the world faced the chaos when extremist organisations stepped up the activities.”
Unknown people attacked the building of the Russian Embassy in Tripoli on October 2.
The Libyan Interior Ministry said about 10 armed people approached the embassy by two cars. They opened fire at a diplomatic car and then at the embassy. After law enforcers arrived on the spot the attackers disappeared. No diplomats or local guards were hurt. Small damage has been caused to the building of the embassy.
